“[…] getting closer to authentic expression, deeper into the music. Away from the ego, into the soul. Finding balance between the chaos of feelings and the dictates of the intellect. Disappearing somewhere between these two states, and growing from that place through the music.”

At the No Mind-festival in Ängsbacka the summer of 2018, I attended a workshop with Githa Ben-David on the note from heaven, and was enthralled. A roomful of people all singing on Aaarh, to their inner note from heaven (or at least aiming for it), for half an hour, that was energizing, let me tell you!

“That which touches the heart is never boring.
We come up against the same truth again and again. It is the essence that is important, not the story itself.”

Then I found out she’s married to Lars Muhl of The O Manuscript, this magnificent book-reading experience of mine, and was even more curious. So I bought her book: The note from heaven, by Githa Ben-David.

“When your light shines, you activate the light in others, and help them to remember that they are complete beings.

Anybody can shine! It is a matter of choice. If you wish to set your light free, then you need to unfold your wings. Let the wind carry you, and be prepared to land on both feet so you can fulfil your destiny on earth.”

I tried explaining to a few friends what The note from heaven is all about… and failed. I couldn’t find the words to explain or convey what this is all about. In short, it centers on the fact that everything is vibrations, truly e v e r y t h i n g. This means that with vibrations we can start to resonate, and dislodge, free, liberate, old memories and traumas, that stop us from shining our light into the world, shining fully as that which we are.

And this resonates enormously with me. It’s synchronicity in the making for me, as I stumble upon shine over and over again. It comes up, in conversations, in comments, in my dreams and the words I write and speak.

“When you find a form of expression that brings you joy, you will naturally wish to share it with other people This is a spiritual law: joy is like fire. When you pass it on and it is accepted, it spreads.”

Instead of trying to give this book the credit it deserves (besides the content and the essence of the story: The language. It is beautifully written!) when I fumble for words, I let the quotes speak for themselves. If they resonate with you, and you get curious about sound-healing, pick up the book!

“Open your arms so that you can contain as much light as possible. Receive everything that is given to you. The more you shine, the better you can serve the all. Pure energy flows like water, catches fire, spreads like love. It must be passed on. If you push it away, you lose it. If you hold on to it, it will be taken from you.” 

Shine on, you crazy diamond! Shine on.
And I, I will shine on right beside you.

The Law of Light (book 20 of 26)

The Law of Light – the secret teachings of Jesus, written by Lars Muhl. As with The O Manuscript, Lars Muhl provides me with yet another wonderful reading experience. Not as outer worldly as The O Manuscript; but most definitely a book well worth the read.

The book is… well… It contains a mix of verses out of Biblical sources paired with Lars providing explanations or perhaps rather interpretations as well as his own little gold nuggets of wisdom. The book ranges over a wide expanse, covering heavenly archetypes and mystery traditions, conscious breathing and sin, love and free will, and much much more. This is a book I already know I want to – and will! – reread. There is simply so much here that intrigues me, that resonates, that provides little glimpses into things I have barely begun to scratch the surface of.

“A person who lives entirely in the outer world without any connection to his or her inner life always ends up as a victim of loneliness and separation. Such a minus-person […] is often frustrated about the past and in constant fear of the future.”

How I can relate to that. My entire recollection of childhood centered (! Yes. Past tense. Because I can change the story I tell about my childhood experience, to best serve me and those around me.) on being left out, feeling isolated and alone, observing rather than taking part.

“Mankind has only one self. On the other hand, this self has two sides, the small, personal self and the higher, transpersonal Self. Through our free will we have, at every instant, the opportunity to choose the type of reality we desire. We can choose the small self’s limited reality, or we can raise ourselves above the personality’s pettinesses and take responsibility for our life in the creative possibilities of the great Self: NOW.”

Another verse I can relate to. Ever-so-much. The rediscovery of my Self, a journey that has lasted – consciously – for the past three years. A journey that inspires me, encourages me, expands me. At the moment, a journey leading me on a playful dance of discovering my inner Yes (and No – but my lukewarm yeses and no’s have been frequent visitors within, those aren’t my main challenges.) which also has me saying yes and no. Stating it, plain and simple, is a challenge in and of itself. But I am getting there!

“Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this is of confusion.” (Matthew 5:37)

A reading experience above and beyond the ordinary

April 29, 2016

For the past month I’ve been reading The O Manuscript by Lars Muhl, and as I finished it last week, I am left with this:the o manuscript

  1. This is the most odd and at the same time the most astonishing book I’ve ever read. A reading experience above and beyond anything I’ve ever had. And as an avid reader, that is quite the statement.
  2. An insight into the power game of humanity. An ancient power game, which in this book is illustrated by the way the Christian church have omitted the female power from the entire story that is told and retold within Christianity. Eye-opening. And a strong sense of recognition. A shift is coming, a shift, from something un-balanced, to something more balanced. Male and female joining hands, working together, for the greater good.
  3. Few are the pages where I haven’t jotted down a comment, starred a beautiful phrase, or marked a paragraph or two of something that I want to look closer at. Phrases, thoughts, ideas to sit with, reflect upon, and just see what opens within me as I do.
  4. Knowing that this was but the first time I read this book. I have an urge already to start reading it again, from the very beginning. The knowing that this is a book that will accompany me on my life’s journey ahead is strong.

Large words. All from the reading of a book.
But yes.
It is a truly wonderful book. Powerful. Very different, in the best possible way.

So different in fact, that as I write this, I am struck by my lack of words. I cannot explain it. I cannot seem to describe my experience while reading it, onto paper. Inside me, there’s a breathless anticipation, an eagerness, the joy of knowing I’ve stumbled across something huge, something so important and life-altering that it’s almost, but just almost, scary. But it’s not. Because I have been opening up to the unknown the vast unknown that The O Manuscript points at, within me, is not something to be scared of. It’s sacred, holy, something to rejoice in, to explore, uncover, and most of all, to live.

I so hope you will pick it up. I also hope that you will get to experience some of the deep emotions this book has evoked in me. I would like to ask you of one thing though, if you do chose to get and read The O Manuscript:
Read it with an open heart, an open will and an open mind and see what awakens in you.
Read it in the state of curious exploration, and listen to what want’s to happen now.
